Weird interior cab leak???

Hey guys,
I did some searching and couldn't find anything except for some traditional cab leak situations. But I was getting into my 04 today and I noticed my driver side floor mat was absolutely soaked. It had been raining a little bit on and off all morning. Of course my feet were wet getting into the truck in the morning, but I didn't notice anything soaked then, and my feet were no where near wet enough to soak the carpet. Heres the kicker, to the best of my knowledge, every other time it has rained, its been dry as usual. Even harder rains than this one. I got to looking, and a couple drops were coming off the bottom of the dash. I got to feeling around, and as far as I could tell, it seemed dry underneath the dash. Nothing on the dash has shorted out or quit working either. Then, I took out my floor mat and there was a wet spot about the size of a dinner plate between the seat and my pedals. But, it was basically dry all around the cab corners and everywhere else. Anyone ever seen anything like this? Ive seen older trucks do stuff like this or if water from the AC is draining into the cab, but that's on the passenger side. But this isn't like that. Anyone have any explanation, solutions, or input?

Get underneath and see if there is a rubber grommet of some sort leaking

If you have a sunroof it is most likely leaking on the driver side corner of the sunroof toward the front of the truck, mine does it when it is sitting flat. It leaks in through that corner and it runs down the driver pillar onto the floor. Just found mine the other day and still need to fix it. You can park your truck where the front sits a little higher and it won't do it but if you park level or where the truck slants forward it will leak in, after a real hard rain it had my headliner wet around that corner of the sunroof and reached my finger in the crack and could feel the water dripping in. I'd check that if you haven't fixed it by now.

I had that same problem. Had to replace a rivet and do some re-sealing.

The rivet held the track assembly together. It was in the front right corner. It had come loose and water was seeping through. I drilled it out and applied sealant between the two pieces, then put another rivet in. Like new!
